High throughput synthesis of peptides and their precise biochemical characterization is the great challenge for the development of better peptides. The incorporation of non-natural amino acids and several rounds of optimization leads to highly active peptides. Searching such peptide libraries makes the difference in peptide development.
The NTP workstation implements the synthesis of up to 100,000 ‘programmable’ peptides per day using natural and non-natural amino acids as building blocks. In this NTP system solution the full characterization of desired properties of synthesized peptides is carried out in parallel. This allows several optimization cycles for the development of peptides with the highest possible binding properties in just a few days.
